About Paul Adamson

Paul Adamson is the author of two non-fiction books for children, the award-winning Beginners Guide to Hunting and Fishing in New Zealand (2014) and Get Outdoors (2022), both of which share his enthusiasm for the great outdoors and encourage readers and their families to get active and have adventures. Paul has a BA in Education and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, has worked as an educator, a school principal and counsellor, and is currently Head of Guidance at Wairarapa College. He is an expert on boys in education and has spoken on the subject at several international conferences.

Paul lives with his wife Suzie on their olive grove in Masterton with their chooks, ducks and labradors Pip and Elsie.
